The Eraser is leaked...


Thom Yorke's highly anticipated solo album The Eraser leaked online about 24 hours ago. The proper release hits shelves July 11 courtesy of XL Recordings. I assume the leak is a direct result of the promo release, and if so, it was inevitable. And thank god for it. Like every other Radiohead-obsessed fan, I literally foam at the mouth with the possibility of any new material, solo or otherwise. So naturally, I downloaded it the instant I heard of the leak and it has been on repeat ever since. My first impression, albeit a simplistic generalization, is Kid A-lite with proper song structure and intelligible lyrics. So in short, it's brilliant. No easy link as a guide...you'll have to search it out for yourself but it won't be hard to find. Anyway, The Eraser will nicely tide me over until I catch the full band at a once-in-a-lifetime theater show in San Fran come late June.
